Kuda Kepang Mabuk

Inconjuction with all the celebrations, there is this performance from the state of Johor; The Kuda Kepang Mabuk performance lasted for about 3 hours in the Little Penang Street Market on the July 27th 2008 has drawn many crowds. Bedak Kid was there too with his family. He ask me lots of questions that I could not answer him, as I was not familiar with the culture dance too. Anyhow, I took some pictures here to show the music intruments and the costumes with the various performances too. It is a story about the "Kuda" which is horses that were drunk after drinking coconut water. Interesting!

The Harmony walk...

Harmony walk consists of the routes taken towards the few famous and heritage mosques, temples and churches. All these are to say the prayers and thanks to the gods that are protecting the people of the island. Here is the "Kuan Yin Teng" Goddess of Mercy, chinese temple.
This is one of the heritage St. George Church in town. One of the oldest I guess.
Here's the Masjid Melayu mosque at Lebuh Acheh. the journey ends here...

GeorgeTown, Penang UNESCO listed!

Penangites are celebrating the Georgetown World Heritage Site. As we are now listed in UNESCO, lots of people around the world will know where Penang is located. Suddenly, a lot of people will be eyeing on to us. Like how people know of "Angkor Wat, Siam Reap".
Well, we are in the heritage list. That shows how rich the culture of Malacca and Penang is. Due to both cities's historical background there is a need to preserve it or else all will be lost in time to come. I am doing my small part in promoting it although I know most Penangites would love developments....... still Penang has always been tourists driven. Now is just that more people will know about it, that's all.
So come celebrate together on this coming 25th-27th July, 2008. It's gonna be fun! See you all there!
